Anybody spot the bizarre charity giving? It's the sort of thing the RN are used to doing, but normally in some third world disaster area where clean water is a luxury, not in the richest country on the planet.

I'm pretty sure if there was a RAF base in the center of Liverpool, The East End of London or Glasgow and the Yanks were over they would be handing out food parcels of Fried Chicken too. It's just for some strange reason most of our Military Bases aren't co-located next to shitholes.

Dear Father Crimbo please can I have our cold war Navy/RAF back please so I can read about hunting subs and bombing enemy formations not this "girlie" PC crap the MOD, which seems to be run by Greenpeace and Oxfam, keeps dishing out. In short more HE less H2O.

The article says that the helicopters are owned by the Army.

So, not a crab in sight and the sailers flying around in squaddy machines!

Is that what they call the writing on the wall for the future of aviation in the senior and the junior services? :)
